Bagpipe of North Africa. It is basically a mijwiz played through a bag, i.e. a double clarinet with two parallel cane chanters, each with a single reed. Each chanter usually has five fingerholes, often with a short cowhorn bell on the end. The bag is normally made from a minimally cured goatskin with the chanters set into the neck hole. The mouthpipe, in one leg hole, often lacks a non-return valve, so the player must stop the pipe with the tongue while inhaling. The other leg holes are plugged with wooden sticks....
